Yeah, I doubt you surf twice a day roflmao
If there was a flat ocean but the weather, lifestyle, economy etc was all the same I’d probably still live here. If there was no ocean, maybe not, but California wouldn’t be what it is without the ocean.

You are a miserable cuck if you think CA is a shithole and can’t enjoy the non surf related plethora of things one can do in CA.

I enjoy my visits to Southern California but I would not want to live there. My experience is only based on the region from LA to San Diego. We've been going out for a week each year for a while. Last year we rented a house towards the beach from the San Clemente Library near a little park. Walking distance to a couple breaks, real close to the pier and bike path and close to shopping. That would be a hell of a place to live so long as you had the means to make a living in such a way that you didn't have to commute. Its the driving situation and the cost of living though that kill it. Houses in that neighborhood go for 1.2-1.7Million. God only knows what the taxes are. If I could afford it and would never have to drive on the 5 it would be a pretty epic place to live.

Of the places I've traveled to surf the place I find most desirable as a place to live would be Hatteras Island. I love the solitude and laid back lifestyle there. The people down there are nicer than other parts of the country. You can get a very nice house for under $500K. Cost of living is relatively low but the job opportunities are minimal. You also have the prospect that your house could be destroyed by a Hurricane once every 10 years.....so there's that. Tons of surf and fishing opportunities.

I have family in northern coastal Maine. That would also be a pretty epic place to live but the surf prospects aren't as good and a good chunk of the year it would be like living in the Arctic. I think there is surf potential in their area but accessing it would be challenging.

Florida???? Well the surf isn't so hot. The fishing is epic. The golf is epic. Climate is optimal. Cost of living dirt cheap. People are a little weird. Driving can be an adventure. Sharks and hurricanes.

Everything is trade offs.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

Maine is really not any colder than Boston. It’s cold but not extreme.

Summer in Maine is ideal

In the mid Atlantic and south of there, summer is too hot

Maine has surf and large quantities of empty breaks

You could spend a lifetime exploring the Maine coast and surfing alone

I’m not from Maine but see the appeal

The climate in Florida is nowhere remotely close to optimal compared to coastal California. It's colder in the winter; the summer is a sweltering hell.

This year even the air quality is garbage. The summer rains are trying to start so hopefully that will douse all the fires.

If I didn't surf I'd want to live in the Northern Rockies.

Maine’s probably the only other place in the NE USA I’d love to live in.

In the past I would have said I coudln't live anywhere that didn't have surf.

It's so crowded now, this State gives me claustrophobia. Surfing is kind of giving me claustrophobia now. Just too many of us. Everywhere. I had it too good for too long.

I'm stuck here with family obligations for now, but I have thought about giving up surfing and leaving for somewhere with an alpine/lake environment. Hunting, fishing, paddling, wake boarding, MTBs, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, etc... Number of my friends have done this.

I've lived up there for a few months in the past. But to be honest I don't know if I could handle the full winter year after year.

Need a house in the mountains and one in the Islands.

It's political because democrats. Orange County wasn't expensive until it flipped blue in 2016. Jacksonville and Daytona don't have any homeless people because publican.

Best advice is move to St. John's County. publican and no homeless people.

Yup, I'd still live here, although, if I had to live anywhere south of where we are now, no.
I rarely venture south of where we live, and then only to LAX or Lowe's or the tackle shop in Ventura.
I'd rather have a colonoscopy than have to travel down to OC or SD.
As pointed out, there's tons of other stuff to do in CA other than surfing.
And, I agree that WH probably doesn't surf twice a day poke
